According to the bank, the purpose of this Technical Cooperation (TC) is to enable the use of digital platforms in the design and implementation of urban development and mobility projects in Latin American and Caribbean cities. Specifically, this TC seeks to support the following activities: (i) carry out dynamic modeling of the impact of new mass transit systems on central districts in LAC cities, in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab, starting with a first pilot in Quito, Ecuador; (ii) implement new digital tools to measure the efficiency of public transit systems; and (iii) increase inclusion and local knowledge through the development and transfer of open mapping tools for urban transit.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
